LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Nine members of the Kentucky track and field team combined to earn 12 All-Southeastern Conference honors for the 2015 outdoor season.

Three Wildcats earned first-team honors, while three Wildcats -- Kendra Harrison, Rebecca Famurewa and Dezerea Bryant -- picked up first-team accolades in multiple events.

Harrison was named to the first team in the 100m hurdles and the second team in the 400m hurdles. Famurewa claimed second team status in both the discus and hammer throw.

Harrison is now a five-time All-SEC selection and Famurewa has earned the honor four times.

Dezerea Bryant also earned second team-honors in two events -- the 100m dash and the 200m. She is now a 10-time All-SEC selection.
